one problem, we get no credit. no greek bank can give us the credit. this is the thing in spain and italy, the credit crunch is one of the biggest problems. my proposal is to go away from austerity by gaining trust by overcoming the credit crunch. and i think at the end, by helping those countries who are nevertheless under the attack of speculator. in the case of italy -- i must admit this is not possible because you need unanimity. it makes no sense that mario monti in italy wants to get a reduction of about 70 billion euros an effect in the budget, three or 4 million a year to finance the separate debt. this is a direct transfer of taxpayers' money into the pockets of speculators. i think the obstacles for the free-trade agreement are enormous. especially on the european side, in my eyes is more ideological founded than it is an expression of an approach. we have some justified question concerning the climate change question. we must be clear, the chance for us to recover is to boost growth worldwide. countries like china or india, in the asian community, or even less in amer
